Sibiu(Hermannstadt) - Kulturhauptstadt 2007

Sibiu, (German: Hermannstadt; Hungarian: Nagyszeben) is a city in Transylvania, Romania, with a population of about 170,000. situated near the geographical center of Romania. Set in the Cibin Depression, the city is about 20 km from the Fagaras Mountains, 12 km from the Cibin Mountains.......
